Dear What am I Worth,
I am 22 and have completed my final year of a BCMS degree at Waikato University with a major in software engineering. I achieved mainly B averages with a couple of As and Cs.
Spherion Recruitment replies: In general there is good ongoing demand for software engineering graduates and some companies are particularly keen on the BCMS degree. Getting that first job is often a challenge and it will take all your determination and initiative to land it.
Now is a good time to follow up with friends, contacts , relatives and business acquaintances to let them know you will be in the market soon. The usual range for graduate salaries is from $28,000 to $35,000 a year.
